Just finished over clocking my CPU on an Asus X99-A. I remember hearing something about the OC Socket causing a fatal voltage spike. Is that still a common thing? I was thankfully walking into my room as I saw the PC restart. The post screen pops up and gives me a over temp warning and over voltage warning. I immediately flipped the surge protector because I remembered it could be fatal for the CPU. What are my chances of it being done for?

Edit: Before turning it back on I reset the CMOS via jumper. Thankfully it looks like it survived. Voltage and temps are normal. Should I worry about this happening again or was it most likely a one time thing?
